Synthpop with a neon pulse.
Andy Deane grew up loving the horror movies and romantic comedies of the 80s. He could watch Michael Myers taking out promiscuous teens for 90 minutes and then shift gears to find out who Molly Ringwald was going to choose to be with at the school dance. There was inspiration to be found at both ends of the spectrum... the horrific and the beautiful, the tragic and the hopeful. Either way, a great soundtrack was the one thing that could put a film over the top.
This dichotomy shapes The Rain Within's sound in many ways; The cold synthesizers of John Carpenter and Vangelis colliding with the soulful, catchy pop structures of The Psychedelic Furs and Depeche Mode. Dance beats pound a path to the future as heartfelt lyrics draw the listener back with nostalgic words of love and loss.
After 2 successful self-released EPs, The Rain Within met up with Negative Gain Productions at a performance in Los Angeles on their first US tour. A bond was formed and from it Dark Drive was born. This ambitious release was written to move you, physically and spiritually, and builds a bridge between the New Wave sound of the 80s and today's audience. The future and the past are singing in harmony on Dark Drive.
Andy Deane is a modern renaissance man, having found success as a musician, a horror author, and most recently as a photographer. He studied voice training with a teacher specializing in opera for many years, and continues to learn on the job. He has toured the US extensively and found his way to Europe and the UK on several occasions with his goth rock band Bella Morte. The Rain Within is his latest musical conquest and tours are in the works to support Dark Drive.
